A few images from my Shabby Chic Kitchen...

It's been a good week!  My daughter just got back from visiting her Aunt and Uncle in sunny California, my son visited me for a couple of days (he lives 2 hrs. away) and I talked to my husband several times this week on Skype from Afghanistan and he is safe.
As I write this post I am listening to one of my favorite Pandora radio stations...Michael Buble Radio! I like that this station plays old music such as Frank Sinatra and newer music such as Jim Brickman and Michael Buble (of course).   I am crazy about Pandora radio. 
I thought I would share a few images from my kitchen with you.  I hope you enjoy them.

I found this vintage wash bowl at a local antique/craft mall.  I paid $15!  I don't know what they are going for but I think I got a great deal.  I love the little architectural detail around the bottom of the bowl. I had some vintage mercury glass ornaments in it but took them out for a simpler look.

I paid $3 for the tin canister and .25-$1.00 for each of the milk glass vases!  The ceramic flowers were less than $1 each.  The vintage look metal architectural salvage used to be burgandy and I painted it pink.

This white shelf used to be black. I painted it and sanded the edges.  The tiny eiffel tower is from Janet at Shabbyfufu. I love to pick up those little vintage porcelain shoes whenever I see them.

I love this vintage millinery flower.  I've had it for years! I think I'm going to change the fabric on this French memo board to a Shabby Chic fabric.  Stay tuned...

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!

Love the wash basin Julie! What an awesome price...and it fits perfectly with your shabby chic decor! I see you have textured walls too...are they common in Texas? I hate that our house has them but everyone we looked at guess we're living a textured life like it or not LOL

Hi Jen,
I live in a town home that was built in the 50's so the walls are heavily textured.
Texturing is very popular in new homes here in Texas. Orange peel and other styles are popular right now...
